Use Case 5- Secondary Steel Plant Productivity Improvement



A large Steel group in India wanted to improve their plant and manpower productivity in 3 of their plants. In addition they wanted to benchmark operating parameters with global peers.

Our Work

For  operations and manpower study ,Experts  carried out the following activities

1.          Visited plants, interactacted with client and consulting team on ground

·      Report preparation and submission


Over 75 improvement  ideas spread across pickling , galvanising , colour coating, cold rolling , electrolytic tinning, temper mills was presented which captured over 10% reduction in direct manpower and 12% improvement in overall productivity of the plants.

Benchmarking of over 300 parameters across 8 plants was presented which was used to improve line speeds , reduce downtimes and staff optimal manpower
